 Sex, Death and Money- Not Easy Topics for Women to Handle

Some of the most difficult topics like sex, death and money appear to be easy to handle for men rather than women, according to a recent research.

Men apparently find it easy to begin a conversation about sex.  The one topic that is perhaps most delicate and difficult for both women and men, is communicating to the family about diagnosis of any serious illness.


The study conducted by Santander Insurance, also found that since people do not talk these subjects often, for instance death, many partners were clueless about managing financially in the event of the sudden death of the partner.  

Steve Burton, from Santander Insurance, says: "When it comes to financial matters, no-one likes thinking about what may happen if a loved was to die or be diagnosed with serious illness but these difficult conversations do need to be had to ensure that family and dependants are aware of any financial provisions they can access. Putting steps in place to prepare can certainly help if the worst was to happen. Our research found that three in ten people admit to having no plans or provision to secure their future financially."
